Our membersSOS International is more than a network: our member organizations take sustainable action by contributing to data and research on the topic, delivering campaigns and programs or adding capacity to each other.

“Climate change is a student interest, because it impacts both the futures of students of today as well as the right to education of the students of tomorrow. As students, we have an important responsibility to push decision-makers to work seriously and immediately to stop this climate crisis” (Johan Hedegaard Jørgensen, President)
Students Organising for Sustainability United Kingdom
Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS-UK) is an educational charity that seeks to get more students leading on and learning about sustainability and social justice. Building on fifty years of leading-edge campaigns and programmes, developed by the National Union of Students (NUS UK), SOS-UK aims to harness the desire of students and young people to respond to the climate emergency and make a real difference now.
SOS-UK is a founding member of SOS International and delivers multiple programmes.
Founding trustee Zamzam Ibrahim, NUS National President, comments: “Students and young people across the world are calling for immediate action, and with youth climate strikes happening in every corner of the planet. It’s time we galvanise that energy and build on it. SOS-UK is our way of contributing and helping the student movement organise and have its say.”
Union of Students in Ireland
USI represents 374,000 students across the island of Ireland and is the main national representative body for third level students in Ireland. USI fights for access to education, and has been active for decades on social issues affecting students.
USI is one of the founding members of SOS and runs the Saves2 project nationally, which encourages students to make small changes to become more sustainable and overall have a big impact.
Student & Innovation House Denmark
Student & innovation House is a platform for student engagement across disciplinaries with the aim to build bridges between students, researchers, the public and the private sector. We are rebuilding an old police station to fit the student activities in Copenhagen and housing those who want to create a better future.
We contribute to SOS International through our Sustainability Influencers project, a semi-structured program that educates a group of students to fulfill the mission of mobilizing, engaging and empowering young people to take action on sustainability issues.
“We show the world what students are able to do!”
